There’s Not One
Scribble Children’s/Picture Books
This joyous debut from Jennifer Higgie celebrates the details and diversity of the world around us. In kaleidoscopic colour, Higgie takes young readers on a journey from some of life’s most important things (baked beans!) to some of life’s biggest wonders (stars!). The perfect early picture book for the curious kid!
Colourful, modern, and full of unique and inspiring messages and quirky images.

“You are the only you in the whole wide world and we’re ALL in it TOGETHER!”
A delightful read.
